Gro Garden Sprinkler Kit - Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Gro Precision Watering kit?

It is a pressure-reduced system which ensures that the same amount of water is delivered out of the dispensing components at every point in the system.

Can I use these if kits if I operate on a well?

We recommend the exclusive use of clear fresh water. Contaminated as well as sandy water can lead to malfunctions.  These kits are designed to work on well water systems.  Each kit includes a mesh screen filter inside the pressure reducer.  This screen can be removed and cleaned as needed.  However, very fine sand can get past the filter.


What should be the maximum temperature of the water?

The water temperature should not exceed 95 degrees F.


What is the Pressure Reducer/Filter required for?

It reduces the inlet pressure (domestic or pump) to approx. 22 psi flow pressure. It filters sand or other solids from the water.


On the Pressure Reducer/Filter, it has a small hole on the side. What is the purpose of this hole?

This hole serves for the complete ventilation of the system during initial commissioning.


Can the Pressure Reducer/ Filter be placed vertically instead of horizontally?

Yes.


What about the stainless steel clamps on the connector, elbow joints, and end plugs?

In operation these stainless steel clamps ensure that the tubing can not slide off. When assembling, ensure that the tubing is pushed onto the clamps as far as they will go.


What water pressure and what amount of water is required for such a kit?

A water pressure of at least 22 psi is required at the inlet of the basic unit. Furthermore, a water quantity of at least 130 gal / hour must be available.


My Watering Kit is not emitting much water. What should I do?

Your system may be clogged.  The Pressure Reducer/Filter has a filter that can be checked and cleaned if necessary by unscrewing one end of the Pressure Reducer / Filter, removing, and cleaning the filter.


The garden I want to set my kit up in is pretty far away from my spigot.  Does not seem like I have enough tubing included in my Garden Sprinkler or Garden Sprayer kit.  What should I do?

The Garden Sprinkler Kit includes 50 ft of tubing.  To install further away from your home, you can hook the system up to the end of your garden hose (instead of your spigot).


My Garden Sprinkler does not spray evenly anymore or does not rotate anymore. What to do?

Your system may be clogged.  Between the base and the Garden Sprinkler there is a filter. This can be removed and cleaned if necessary.


I am looking for more components to expand my current Garden Sprinkler Kit. What should I do?
